About

PremiŤred in 1946, a year after the end of World War II, Coplandís iconic Third Symphony was described by the composer as Ďa wartime piece Ė or, more accurately, an end-of-war piece Ė intended to reflect the euphoric spirit of the country at the time.í The fourth movement, heard on this recording in its original uncut form, opens by quoting one of his most well-known pieces, Fanfare for the Common Man. Copland described the Three Latin American Sketches Ďas being just what the title says. The tunes, the rhythms and the temperament of the pieces are folksy, while the orchestration is bright and snappy and the music sizzles along.í

Leonard Slatkin is Music Director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) and the Orchestre National de Lyon (ONL). He also maintains a rigorous schedule of guest conducting throughout the world and is active as a composer, author, and educator. Slatkinís more than a hundred recordings have received seven Grammy awards and 64 nominations. His Naxos recordings include works by Saint-SaŽns, Ravel, and Berlioz (with the ONL) and music by Copland, Rachmaninov, Borzova, McTee, and John Williams (with the DSO).
